Tim spoke with Fahad, our Business Development Manager about why he supports Simon on the Streets and his 'Pay Fair' business model.
We met Phil during our outreach on the streets at the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak. He had lost his job and his accommodation and was sleeping in a broken tent.
We will always work towards the goals and aspirations of each person. And Nick’s aspiration is to have a garden.
Pam was sofa surfing at a friend’s house when she first met our outreach worker. Unfortunately, her friend was moving house and Pam was to become homeless once more.
"There’s a difference between giving your money and being parted with your money. Some companies are advised on CSR, and are told to give to a charity – which runs the risk for them of feeling parted with their money. I don’t want to be parted with my money, I want to give."
When coronavirus hit the UK, Adam lost his job and his home. Adam was sleeping rough when we met him whilst on outreach. We helped Adam get a place in a b&b but we noticed Adam begin to become quiet and withdrawn.
We met Travis when he was sleeping on the streets after being released from prison. Travis wanted to own a place of his own but living independently after all this time was daunting.
Ed lost his job and accommodation when coronavirus hit. He was sleeping in an old shed when we met him.
